One of the world's leading trumpet stars gives a special 4BR masterclass — so why not get in touch with him for some extra tips too...

Mike Lovatt
  Mike Lovatt is regarded as one of the world's great lead trumpet players

4BR will be linking up with professional brass and percussion players over the coming weeks to provide some great 5 minute masterclasses.

The working lives of freelance players have been hit hard by the Coronavirus pandemic, so if you have the chance please get in touch with them and book some on-line lessons and tuition.

Mike is of course known around the world for his brilliant playing — and you will be able to hear him in action on the new James Bond film 'No Time to Die' when it is released.

He could also be heard on the Oscar winning Judy Garland bio-pic starring Rene Zellweger, so there is no better person to gain invaluable tips and advice from.
